How the hell are you spinning like that on dry pavement? I try daily and can almost never get the wheels to break loose. What RPM are you power-braking to? Is it the LSD that's letting you do that? We have basically identical performance setups otherwise...

The wind hampered the sound of everything. If you don't have a cameraman, jut chalk the street to set the cars position.

Clean ride though.


The suggested video of the truck bending was pretty wild.

I donno it just does lol. All i do is stage and if it dosen't go right away i release a little break till it goes. i can break loose from a dead stop too, not crazy like tho. and i can get sideways around cornors too in manual mode.I dont think the lsd made it so i could, i used to do one wheels with the stock base diff and 245's. I never thought i'd be able to do a burn out with 285's on back too, but i proved that wrong

Good deal on the LSD, thats what the V6's should have came with. I understand the cost savings. In terms of added safety and usefulness the LSD is a must. There is a handfull of times where I've kicked the car sideways from not even an agressive take off in the rain with the ESC on.
